But on his 11th birthday, he learns he’s a powerful wizard—with a place waiting for him at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As he learns to harness his newfound powers with the help of the school’s kindly headmaster, Harry uncovers the truth about his parents’ deaths—and about the villain who’s physics team names to blame. Grew Up… with her witch mother, Andromeda, and Muggle-born father, Ted. Tonks’ mother grew up in the House of Black, a Pureblood family renowned for their hatred of anyone of lesser blood status. When Andromeda married the non-Pureblood Ted, she was disowned and burned off the Black family tree.

However, she must have been a very capable student in spite of her fondness for mischief, since becoming an Auror requires high marks in many subjects. After leaving Hogwarts in the summer of 1991, Tonks had to undergo an additional three years of training to become an Auror, only qualifying in the summer of 1994.

As nymphs were one with nature, one possible reason is a subconscious rejection of the idea of blending into the natural world, as can also be seen in her pink hair. She may be simply rebelling against the idea of blending in and, instead, is subconsciously attempting to stand out. Also, nymphs were often pursued by men, perhaps as the object of male fantasy.

When she married Remus Lupin in 1997, a happier Tonks was sorry that Harry couldn’t attend the wedding due to him being required to remain with his Muggle relatives to ensure the protective charm on him held. It was largely because of Harry’s words that Lupin returned to Tonks. In 1998, when she gave birth to a son named Teddy Lupin, both Tonks and Lupin agreed that Harry would be the godfather. Harry was devastated when he learned that Nymphadora was murdered by her aunt, Bellatrix Lestrange. He noted that the grief he felt over the death of Tonks was akin to a physical wound. Andromeda Tonks is an unsung hero of the Harry Potter series because she is driven first and foremost by love.

The Boy Who Lived feels extremely honored to be given the role but worried about whether he’ll be as reckless a godfather as Sirius was to him–especially as he’s planning to break into Gringotts at the time. It’s only after Fenrir Greyback’s attack on Bill Weasley that the former Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher has a change of heart. Lupin and Tonks end up getting together and later married but their relationship, as you’d expect, doesn’t always go plain-sailing. What the movie doesn’t reveal, however, is that they leave because of Tonks. She sends them a letter by muggle post saying they’ve been shortlisted for the ‘All-England Best Kept Suburban Lawn Competition’. Everybody is amused at the prospect of Vernon, Petunia, and Dudley all leaving the house only to find out they’ve been had.

“Teddy was raised by Andromeda. However, unlike Neville, who was also raised by his grandmother, Teddy had his godfather, Harry, and all his father’s friends in the Order, to visit and stay with.” The Tonks family supported the Order of the Phoenix during the Second Wizarding War, though only Nymphadora Tonks was an actual member. Shortly after marrying Remus Lupin, she became pregnant and stayed at her parents’ home with her mother, while her father was forced to go on the run to avoid the Muggle-Born Registration Commission.

Dumbledore is extremely clever and farsighted, having laid the plans for Harry’s quest very thoroughly, but he is very cryptic, and Harry comes to doubt his wisdom. Dumbledore’s character and accomplishments come under attack throughout the course of the book. Dumbledore founded the Order of the Phoenix, a group of wizards dedicated to fighting Voldemort. In the books, Tonks regularly changes her hair, doing things like standing in front of a mirror while Harry Potter is packing in his room, changing her hair color, and cutting until she finds something she likes. She taught me how to think freely and stand up for my beliefs.

Harry’s former Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher and good friend. In Spring 1998 Tonks gave birth to there first and only child Teddy Lupin,named after her father who had died a few months earlier,and made Harry Potter the Godfather. Delphini’s mom is Belltrix and her dad is Tom Riddle but Belltrix and Tom were not married.

During the Second Wizarding War the family supported Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter. Though Tonks and Charlie Weasley were in the same year at school, there was no reason to believe they knew each other well before their appearances in Hogwarts Mystery (in which Jacob’s sibling is also in their year). Although her common use of the word ‘wotcher’ suggests that Tonks is from southern England, on the UK editions of the audiobooks Stephen Fry reads her with a strong Lancashire accent. A ‘Tonk’ literally means, ‘a fool or idiot’, ‘a powerful hit or strike’. Tonks might have been a friend of Sturgis Podmore, Elphias Doge, Emmeline Vance, Arabella Figg, Hestia Jones, and Mundungus Fletcher, as they had contact through the order. She shared the fate of being one of many members of the Order killed in various battles during the wars.

She was later part of the Order task force, disguised as an old woman, that escorted Harry, Hermione, Ron, Ginny, Fred, and George to King’s Cross Station, so they could catch the Hogwarts Express. In the summer of 1995, Tonks was part of the Order’s Advance Guard sent to escort Harry from 4 Privet Drive to 12 Grimmauld Place, after his encounter with Dementors in Little Whinging. Tonks qualified fully as an Auror in 1994, she was one of the last ones taken on. According to her father, she had been through worse experiences than many of her next battles. Professor Sprout didn’t make her one of Hufflepuff’s prefects in her fifth year because she lacked the ability to behave properly.
